I wanted to try kambu sadam, kambu koozh for quite a long time. Finally i made kambu sadam today and reserved few balls for kambu koozh which i will be making it tomorrow.
Kambu makes a great alternative for rice. I strongly suggest you to skip rice atleast once or twice a week and include any millet in your diet. It is really a health alternative. Specially during summer days kambu koozh is best because it just cools your body naturally.
I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
Preparation Time : 5 mins
